We are delighted to announce that Home of Performance bagged not one, but two international awards during last night’s Global Search Awards 2021, in the categories of Best Global Start-up Agency and Best Local PPC Campaign.

The fully virtual ceremony was hosted last night, Tuesday 13th July 2021, celebrating the very best in PPC, SEO and Content Marketing from across the globe. The judging panel recognized and rewarded the best agencies, campaigns, and individuals working within the search industry. 

Home of Performance was awarded Best Local PPC Campaign for our project “Killing Germs & The Competition” alongside our partner The Healthy Home.

Judge Michael Bonfils, the CEO and Founder of SEM International stated that “all the judges felt that this winning agency really looked at the entire ecosystem impacting their PPC performance and brought a creative and holistic approach to delivering great results. This was a really impressive campaign, which had an extremely localised strategy focusing on geotargeting. It was great to see that their success was reflected through superb client testimonials.”

We were also nominated for one of the most highly contended awards of the night, the Best Global Start-Up Agency. The judges decided there will be a Winner and Silver Award in this category due to the quality of entries, and Home of Performance won the Silver Award!

It is a particularly special honour to be shortlisted for such a category, but this award recognizes both the work we do every day and the progress we have made during the past 18 months.

“Winning an award at this level means the world to us. For me, it’s a testament to the importance of always setting high goals, something that has always been close to my heart. For the team it’s proof that their hard work is paying off, and that we actually are doing great things when we get all things right,” shared John von Hofsten, the Founder and Managing Director of Home of Performance. “But mostly, it shows that if we apply ourselves, our growth will not only continue, we will be able to grow into a global agency with world-class capabilities. It’s not a matter of if this will happen, only how fast we will be able to get there.”

To all our partners; thank you for being a part of our journey and for believing in us, making this achievement possible.
